Guanajuato, Gto., November 8, 2019.- The student María Guadalupe Ortiz Aldaco of the PhD in Chemical Sciences of the University of Guanajuato won a recognition of the best poster at the National Congress of the Polymeric Society of Mexico A.C that was held in Boca del Río, Veracruz.
Under the title "Mechanistic Aspects of Polymerization and Structure-Ownership in Oligomers: A Theoretical and Experimental Study", the student presented her research work that she develops under the advice of the professor-researcher in the Department of Chemistry of the UG, Dr. José Eduardo Báez García. His presentation was the winner in the poster section at the Polymer Synthesis Symposium.
In interview, the student mentioned that this work is part of her PhD thesis and in this part of her work as a researcher indicated that her main purpose was to carry out a theoretical-experimental study of polymerization catalyzed by bismuth subsalicylate.
During her research she tested the low toxicity of bismuth, which represents a competitive advantage for other catalysts.
It should be noted that with the development of these academic meetings the Polymer Society of Mexico promotes and disseminates research, teaching and technological development in the field of polymers and establishes links between the different institutions related to this area.
María Guadalupe Ortiz Aldaco expressed her satisfaction in taking the recognition of the best poster presented at the congress, "that my work has been awarded motivates me to continue my work in scientific research, in addition to publicizing what we are at Guanajuato University."
It should be noted that there are various lines of research in polymers such as methods of synthesis, analysis, characterization and theoretical calculations, as well as their applications in nanotechnology, environment, tissue engineering and biomaterials, among others.
This congress organized in collaboration with the Universidad Veracruzana was attended by members of the Mexican Polymeric Society, as well as higher education and graduate students from all over the country.
